Silly Syl Radio

DJ Silly Syl

electronic. hip-hop. bay area. performance. storytelling through songs.

I'm Silly Syl. I'm a Boston-bred, Oakland-based DJ.

In the past year, I’ve held down opening slots for artists like Orijanus + Lege Kale, Prince Fox + CryWolf + TastyTreat, Sosupersam, Snakehips, Tokimonsta, StayLoose + Autograf.

Other notable performances include WhatTheFestival (Oregon), Lock & Key, Blind Dragon, + Blue J Lounge (Los Angeles), Chitty Bang (Oahu, Hawaii), NoFilterCafe (Delhi, India).

I hosted a weekly radio show on Traklife.com, where I introduced my audience to undiscovered electronic Soundcloud gems and remixes of hip-hop/r&b favorites. After three years, I've wrapped up the show with 133 episodes.

I’m looking into 2019 with a fierce determination to write my own lyrics, develop my vocals, and learn the basics of electronic music production.

Contact me at DJSillySyl @ gmail. com if you'd like to book me for an event. Bay Area-based but will travel!

Welcome to the third installment of the HeartBrokeBeatz series. This mix is painfully honest. It was difficult to create. Although the story may involve a boy, it’s not about him really. It’s about my experience of falling for a fantasy, through my eyes...and my voice, along with @cardlinaudio, voicing the male counterpart. I can’t thank him enough for helping me bring my creative vision to life with his resonant and emotional vocals. If you’re ready to hear my truth, open your heart...

Welcome to Skin to Skin. Thanks for tuning in. This 2-hour mix is your soundtrack to an intimate journey. Think of the start of the mix as flirtatious foreplay. Marc. E Bassy's got his hotel room all ready for you and then @iamblackbear lets you know it's bout that time you slide thru. The mood shifts pretty quickly from flirtation to seduction as the darker electronic tracks set in. There's a touch of heartbreak as @worshipuk sings on repeat, "You're always in my heart, no matter where...

I recently discovered DJ/producer Kasia from her remix of Travis Scott's "Antidote." Since I had really been digging her style and she gave me a follow-back on Soundcloud, I figured I'd reach out to see if she'd be down to do a guest mix for my show. She threw down a filthy set and inspired me to pull out some more hip-hop and trap bangers. Rage face to the first 30 mins and then come down with the second half of the show.
